Dillon is a Baton Rouge, LA native and graduate of Louisiana State University.  Upon graduation Dillon commissioned as an officer in the Louisiana Army National Guard where he now serves as a Battalion Communications Officer.  Dillon recently returned from a deployment with his National Guard unit in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and Operation Spartan Shield. 

Outside of his current civilian career in the disaster recovery field he enjoys playing golf and writing.  Dillon was the reason the Louisiana Chapter of Honor Flight came to be.  He gathered the board together one night at Louisiana State University where all the board members were pursuing their Masters of Business Administration with an idea.  Dillon’s goal in starting Honor Flight Louisiana was to honor his grandfather and to help Louisiana veterans fill their souls with a sense of honor and closure for their heroic and grateful service.
